Professional wrestlers from Auckland’s Maniacs United are set to come to Dargaville for a third show. All profits from the show will be used to help rebuild a house for the Gilligan family whose house burnt down in January.

Ray White Jean Johnson Realty is one of the local business backing the show. Jean says she “loves supporting the community, enjoys wrestling and watched it as a child. The Gilligan family have been to other matches and they were very supportive and loved every match.”

Matich’s fish shop and the Northern Wairoa Lions are also supporting the show.

“We heavily believe in giving back and we can’t do it without the support of the community and surrounding areas so head on up (to the event) and support a great cause,” say the Manics.

Janneke Gilligan says that the community support so far has been “overwhelming”.

The show will be on Saturday, March 18 at 5.45pm in the Northern Wairoa Memorial hall in Dargaville. Tickets are available from Matich’s fish shop and Ray White Dargaville: adults $20, children $10 — families $40.
